Approximate Purchase Date: Looking to purchase parts from now until X-mas when I have time to build.


Budget Range: 600-800 before rebates.


System Usage from Most to Least Important: SC2, World of Warcraft, Surfing Internet and school work


Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com or amazon


Country of Origin: NY, USA


Parts Preferences: Either or is fine, but I think AMD is more cost efficient from last time I built my PC.


Overclocking: No


SLI or Crossfire: Maybe


Additional Comments: I am building 2 PC's for my cousins who been saving up like forever to play SC2 in max resolution, therefore I am looking for nice combo deals to help them save some cash since I wont be building their units until after x-mas break.


Thank you all for your help.

wow, the combo for the PSU and the mobo is a really nice price... it seems like they removed the instant $50 for the combo though. Im suprised for the price for the 6850... i remember paying around 350 for the 5850 just 8 months ago... sigh...

Ty for your input... decent build.

I went ahead and purchased 2 of the mobo and PSU combo... However, I was thinking... If i were to build one system with the 6850 and the other with the GTX 460. Would I have issues if I were to follow batchuka's build??? Since I am building 2 PC's.. I was thinking of using it as a learning experience and having fun with it. ;)

The 790X was picked as it was a good mobo, in a good combo and offers CF support out of the box. If u want an SLI option with that GTX 460 some research is needed
